Peoria Park District is looking for new management for its golf courses

PEORIA - Golf courses in Peoria may come under new management.

The Peoria Park District manages the links, but due to financial issues, It's looking to hire GolfVisions, a privately owned firm to manage the courses.

The park district hasn't signed a contract. If it does, the district would determine the prices and fees, but GolfVisions would manage the courses and its employees.

Emily Cahill is the Peoria Park District’s Executive Director. She says, "What we heard from GolfVisions and the other entities that we interviewed, were that they make every effort to retain the people who know the courses, who know the work. Anyone who obviously works for the district now would be invited to interview."

You can learn more about the contract and what it'll mean for the courses at a public meeting on August 23rd at the Noble Center.
